Dear Fred Meyer's customer,
Hi. My name is Krista. You don't know me. But I feel like I know you.
You were in front of me in the Express Lane yesterday. I ran into the store with Bee, my son. He hadn't had nap and was letting the whole store know with his screaming.
I decided against getting all the things on my list. I just grabbed what I needed.
And practically ran through the store, with a screaming kid, and ended in the Express Lane. This is where we met.
You were ahead of me. You turned and glared at me. I'm assuming it was because of the two year old in my cart. I understand he was yelling.
That is actually why I was in the Express Lane, so I could hurry on out of there.
Well I looked passed the glare, but could not look pass the fact that you were paying you $50+ bill with quarters. They weren't rolled either.
I KNOW times are tough. Trust me, I have been known to scramble in the McD's line for a couple extra quarters.
BUT the Express Lanes are for the people that need to run in the store and run out.
I did notice that you had less than 20 items. (I had time to count.) Thank you for not going over the limit. I really appreciate it.
I had time standing in line, to think of many things I'm grateful for. (I try to count my blessings when I'm getting angry.) It took a total of twenty minutes for you to count all your quarters. TWENTY MINUTES IN THE EXPRESS LANE!!!
(I was trapped, by the way, there was another lady behind me.)
So while I stood in line, trying not to harm my kid, you counted.
Can I make a suggestion, so you don't get shot...roll your quarters, take them to the bank and get bills. People will be less hostile toward you. You may even have people offer to help you out to your car. Instead of you, looking/begging for help.
I'm just trying to keep you safe! (And me out of jail!)
(PS I talk way big. I would never do anything to a little old lady.)
